Winners Say – Quotes from the Oscar nominees

Oscar nominations were announced recently. Two of the film’s from the Warner Bros Pictures roster – Joker and Richard Jewell came out shining. Joker received 11 nominations – more than any other film and Kathy Bates was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for Richard Jewell.

Below are quotes from the nominees :

TODD PHILLIPS

“Joker began as an idea, an experiment really— could we take an “indie approach” to a studio film by inverting it into a character study to reflect the world around us? Explore what we’re seeing and feeling in society, from the lack of empathy to the effects of the absence of love. I am deeply honored by the overwhelming recognition of the Academy this morning, and I want to thank the genius that is Joaquin Phoenix, and all my incredible collaborators. We are beyond humbled that our peers in the film-making community have embraced the film and its message.“

– TODD PHILLIPS, BEST PICTURE, BEST DIRECTOR, BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY (with Scott Silver) NOMINEE for JOKER

JOAQUIN PHOENIX

“I feel honored and humbled to have been nominated by my fellow actors. The Academy’s encouragement helped ignite and sustain my career and I am incredibly grateful for that support. I’d like to also congratulate my fellow nominees for being recognized for their inspiring performances that have enriched our art form.”

HILDUR GUĐNADÓTTIR

“I’m truly honored and proud to be recognized with an Academy Award nomination for my work on JOKER. Being invited into this illustrious group of talent and getting to take part in telling this story means the world to me. Todd Phillips is a master of his craft and it was wonderful to experience how he trusts and empowers his collaborators so they can deliver their best work possible.  We see that in the way every element of the film has its space to shine, because he gives each element real weight. The brightest shining of those of course being Joaquin Phoenix´s performance, which was simply otherworldly. I’m grateful for having been invited on this journey of a lifetime with them and I congratulate all of my fellow nominees on their nominations.”

LAWRENCE SHER

“This is truly a dream come true.  I’m one of those people that ever since I was a kid I religiously watched the Oscars.  Each year I watched it like it’s my Super Bowl ordering pizza and filling out brackets with my friends and family.  The show always reinvigorates my love for movies and the people who make them and inspires me to keep striving to be better with each project I do.  So to wake up this morning and get this nomination from the Academy is beyond special. I’m so happy for all my fellow nominees in Cinematography, it’s quite an impressive list of craftspeople.  The 11 Nominations for Joker makes me particularly proud, that the Academy members recognized so many for our work on this film and Todd’s 3 nominations are the most exciting of all – it all starts with him.”
